Had All Four Wisdom Teeth Out Last Week, Hello Punctured Sinus....Hey guys...It has been seven days since I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed. The two on the left side of my mouth were impacted, but were coming in straight up. I went to an oral surgeon for this and was put completely under. The first thing I remember coming out of it was the doc telling me he "really had to rough me up." Apparently the two impacted teeth gave him a lot of trouble and I was also told I had "an incredibly dense jaw." Awesome...
Also as I am sitting there, my nose starts bleeding.... He then tells me that the top impacted tooth's roots were into my sinus cavity?? And when he yanked it out, he punctured a hole in my sinus--he told me he fixed it when I was under though. Lovely.
So that same day and the day after, I was still in La La land from the drugs, wasn't really in pain and was numb for the most part. Monday rolls around and I have THE WORST sinus headache ever. I'm talking bad...like looking at a dimly lit hallway light made me want to throw up. Oh wait, I did...threw up several times on Monday and Tuesday. That and my nose would not stop bleeding when I bent my head down.
Now, seven days later, my mouth doesn't hurt (never really did), it is my sinus that is killing me. There is a lot of pressure in my sinus when I swallow, then as it clears, I can feel bubbles rising through my mouth incision to my nose. Gross, I know, I am sorry.
All in all, getting the teeth out was completely fine, getting the sinus punctured was awful.
